FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without accessing any other content in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting services. This feature is not restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client apps are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a certain account or to modify its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve created a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a web hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which Control Panel you choose during the VPS order procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll gain FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – if you want different individuals to be able to access the web content inside it using their very own sign-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an intuitive web-based interface.
